telling our children and our children's children what it once was like in america when men were free. >> government has not taken our freedom. it's preserved and expanded our freedom. but the same narrow view has fueled the tea party and powered the romney/ryan ticket. they despise government and they told us as much and the only thing that's worse than government, the millions who rely on it. >> there are 47% who are with him, who are dependent upon government who believe they are victims. >> only 30% want the welfare state. >> one writes off 30%. the other thinks it's more like 47%. that explains their plans to gut medicaid, to change medicare as we know it, to make big government the enemy, except when big government needs to interfere with women's rights. but here's the thing. there's an opposing view. the storm last week made one thing so clear. government is vital. and the last four years have driven the same point home. >> no matter how bad a storm is, no matter how tough times may get, we are all in this together. we rise and fall as one nation and as one people. >> we've com

intent are the recruit many efforts going to be from you to try to get folks that look more like america and not be as white as the republican party is? >> you know, one of the ironies of this election outcome at least right now some of our latino members, some of our women members and perhaps the african-american members which is kind of ironic. look, we have to do better. we know that. we have to learn from our losses. republicans have had since world war ii. we're coming off the biggest. so we have a message that works. look at the census data, though, and tell me today with poverty rates shooting up even higher among latinos and asians that somehow what the democrats have offered has worked for them. and, you know, the best thing we can do is run on our economic platform. it's about creating jobs, it's about lifting people out of poverty and, yes, we're going to reach out and do a better job communicating that message. mistakes made, we're going to learn from them, do better. >> mitt romney said in a conference call to his financial chai chairs, the reason he lost the presidency is t
